Studio Around the Corner
Three artists join together to for a spectacular photography show entitled, “Lens3s” opening at The Studio Around the Corner 67 Main Street in Brewster, NY on Friday, January 13 at 7:00PM
Patricia Bolgosano, started out as a print technician in a commercial custom darkroom after obtaining a degree in photography from Chowan University. As technology advanced, so did her printing technique. She now works as a digital imaging specialist at Visual Impact, reproducing art using the Giclée method.
When Adobe Photoshop was introduced, She immediately saw the value in such a creative tool and was inspired to learn. By watching tutorials and staying up way too late, she taught herself Photoshop 2.0.
Photography has always been her passion. Her creative process starts when something catches her eye. “I’m fascinated by colors, shapes and the way natural light illuminates our world. I combine my love for photography and the creative aspects of Photoshop with the art of printing,” states Bolgosano. I experiment with many printing processes including transfers, overlays, overprinting and collage. Photography helps me express my feeling for life and living.
Pal Gyomai was born and raised in Hungary but relocated to the United States in 1983 and has been living in Putnam County since then.
His interest in photography started around the age of 13 and has not stopped. He is a self-taught photographer working mostly in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. He also likes to engage in graphic design using Adobe Illustrator and some video editing with Adobe Premier Pro and Cyberlink PowerDirector.
His subject matter covers a wide range, perhaps his favorite is what is mostly called street photography. “I like to capture candid moments without disturbing the subjects,” explains Gyomai, “ Most of my work is black and white, I like the timelessness of the gray scale images. I hope my art blesses your heart.”
Since Lori Kemp was a child, photographs have always fascinated her, and later other types of art would captivate her as well. Interestingly, it was through staring at various old photos and paintings that propelled her into her other passion – researching history. Happily, in a full circle, it is through traveling and researching local history that many of her images are born.
Having taken numerous art and design courses over the years, she found that digital photography is the easiest mode of self-expression – the camera is portable, and as such, is her constant companion. “I’m attracted to a wide array of subject matter and enjoy numerous styles of photography, so the body of my work is an eclectic mix” explains Kemp. Her biggest joys come from the ‘hunt’ of capturing a special moment in light and time, and that zen state she goes into when photographing. It happens again when she is editing the images.
